I’m probably being overly optimistic, but as each ridiculous, expensive, and irksome regulation of the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act is inflicted upon a chary public, I can feel a little groundswell of revulsion that might ultimately lead to seeing this travesty die aborning.

Good morning all! I’m a bit early today. Will be leaving at about 10 a.m. (EDT) for Boston to visit in-laws.

When I first read this I thought it said adorning, as in "Patriots all over the country are busy adorning their homes and themselves with red, white, and blue in celebration of Independence Day tomorrow.

But you want a sentence that says something like, "Obamacare seems to have died aborning."

Nice work beating the Ping. And yes, Obamacare springs to mind.

A mere two centuries after Washington, Adams, Jefferson and Madison, we are now led by the likes of Obama, Biden, Reid and Schumer. Sic transit Gloria!

For extra credit, compare and contrast the contents of the Affordable Care Act with that of the Constitution.

Rather than the Constitution, how about the Declaration of Independence, which we mark the signing of 237 years ago tomorrow?

* He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

* He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

* He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

* He {intends to keep} among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

* He {intends to render} the military independent of and superior to civil power.

* He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws...

* For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent...

* For depriving us in many {future} cases, of the benefits of trial by jury...

* For ... abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

* He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless ... savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

* In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

* Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our ... brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.

Interesting that you used the word as an adjective. There is such usage, but I omitted it to avoid confusion. However, since you mentioned it, I will provide the adjective definition:

aborning, adjective
being born; coming into being, fruition, realization, etc.:
A new era of architecture is aborning.

Outstanding!

And, if we substitute Barack Obama for King George III as the antecedent of "he," many of the acts which our Founding Fathers found to be intolerable are being reprised.

happy 4th and safe travels, Truthy!

Took Chan to the vet yesterday to update her shots for boarding, when we go on vaca in a few weeks. I love the one vet at this practice and always try to get him. Chan was done with her checkup in just a few minutes but i sat and talked with him for a half hour [no pets were waiting, i think it must have been his lunch hour] we had chatted briefly in the past, his son is a doctor and does stints with Samaritan's purse [franklin graham's christian relief organization] so i figured him for a conservative. He had just returned from Israel, where he and his wife went on vaca with their church. We talked about Israel and then how Obams has pretty much abandoned it. And then we got onto the Sup ct ruling etc. It was great to talk to him. Felt positively subversive in this area where 99% of the pop is lib or ignorant.

My daughter needs to have braces. So, thank God she’s an only child!

We do have some coverage on our dental, but we’re still looking at a nice chunk of change.

Which will be useful when Barack's Toilet Paper Czar misses his production quota, leaving "the masses" unwiped as well as unwashed. Or is it "them asses?"

I have 3 kids and they all needed braces. After I finally paid off my third one’s bill, I gave the orthodontist a big smile. He said, “Hey, let me look at your teeth.” Bottom line, in my early 40s I wore braces for two years. Hurt like hell. Old teeth are more set in their ways. Cost a bunch, as well.

Yeah—those who want to save babies from having their brains vacuumed out by the likes of “Dr.” Gosnell are in league with Satan. Those who favor late-term abortions believe that they, themselves are paragons of virtue.

Orwell’s “newspeak” is becoming more prevalent every day.

Because my parents lived in the country I was aborning at home in the morning or was it mourning? Before that I was suborning but then that was years ago.
